Just as I mentioned in my my Dollar tree Fall craft and decor ideas I posted back in August, “don’t shoot the messenger”. Little did I know it would be so warmly received, and yet so early on. So I figured I would piggy back off that, and share my Dollar tree Christmas craft and decor ideas round up with you. Obviously, budget friendly craft ideas seem to be pretty popular. At this point in my life, I pride myself on them. I enjoy taking something basic and creating some seasonal fun with it. All the links highlighted will take you to the actual project and/or free printable.
This beautiful look is one of those Christmas door decorating ideas that is so simple, yet so unexpected. To create this festive, wintery wreath, the homeowner simply started with a simple red and white wreath and hung a pair of clean white ice skates in the middle. To really evoke the image of skating on a frozen lake on a cold Christmas afternoon, they added a dark blue patchwork winter scarf and some sprigs of balsam. This holiday door look captures exactly what a unique Christmas decoration should be: Brilliant in its simplicity.

If your favorite part of Christmas is the abundance of candy canes, then this Christmas front door decoration is right up your alley. Hang two large outdoor candy canes on either side of your door, the hooked parts facing in opposite directions. If the candy canes you pick up don’t have enough sparkle for your liking, then add some glitter spray, which can easily be found at any craft store. To really give this look some pizazz, loop some candy cane print ribbon around a wreath, finishing off your unique DIY christmas decoration with some metallic green and red bulbs.
Draped over doorways and wrapped around hand rails, garlands and wreaths pull together your holiday decorations and add a touch of warmth to your home's inside and outside spaces. Garland ranges from simple greenery to fully decorated pieces adorned with pinecones, candy canes, holly and sugared fruit. You can even wrap garland with lights for a bit of sparkle. Try single strands of garland across the mantel or tabletops. Deck the front porch railings with tinsel garlands and ribbons. Turn your front door into a festive work of art by hanging thick garland across the top of the frame. Pair it with a coordinating wreath to complete the look.
Give your holiday guests a warm welcome before they even have time to step foot in your house with these creative Christmas door decorations. With these easy DIY holiday crafts, you can bring the festive cheer that's inside — Christmas trees, twinkle lights, and glitzy table settings— to your front door, steps, or porch. Take your pick: Go classic with traditional evergreen wreaths, add color with multi-hued bows, or opt for the unexpected with picture-worthy garland to dress the front of your home in its holiday best. If you really want to wow your neighbors and party guests, outline the rest of your house — door frames and windows, too — with Christmas lights. An added bonus: It'll illuminate your entryway at night.
A tree trimmed in traditional red and green emphatically says "Christmas" with top-to-bottom vintage letters. These letters culled from old signs, printers' type, and alphabet teaching aids punctuate this tree. Arrange them to make a statement, and spell out holiday words such as "Ho Ho Ho" and "Holly." Throw in silver starbursts, baubles, and tinsel garland for a stylish '50s aura.
Inside the house, Christmas trees are key. Whether you prefer a fresh-cut tree or an easy-to-assemble artificial tree, The Home Depot is sure to have one that suits your style and fits your space.

Along the way, you may even get the opportunity to revisit your favorite decorations of Christmas' past like Grandma's vintage Santa figurines or the glittering tinsel trees you grew up with.
